 Excerpt from STAND FAST IN THE TRUTH, by Archbishop Averky:     

"The enemy of the human race is employing all his efforts and all his means to pull it down, and he is widely supported in this by open and secret apostates from the true faith and Church, including even those who have betrayed their high vocations and oaths as clergymen and even as hierarchs heading certain individual churches."
